[NEALE IMPRINT] [VIRGINIA POET] OUR SOUTHERN QUINTETTE, AND OTHER POEMS

New York and Washington: The Neale Publishing Company, 1908.

Hard Cover. First Edition. 8vo. (7 3/4” x 5”); in the publisher’s gray buckram with titling in gilt; 72 pages; there is a previous owner gift inscription on the pastedown, dated in 1917; the binding has some soiling and darkening but is otherwise quite secure and sturdy.

We know from Mr. Krick that Rosser was from Rustburg, Virginia and that the many of the 34 poems in this slender anthology, speak of love and nature. “The quintette is composed of Poe, Lanier, Hayne, Timrod and Ryan.” (Krick 427).


Very Good binding.
